This book is a companion both to John Sentamu’s Hope Stories (DLT, 2014) and to his Faith Stories (DLT,2013). In this new book Archbishop Sentamu introduces the stories of 22 individuals with personal encounters of the love of God in the midst of devastating experiences such as bereavement, female genital mutilation, being held hostage and surviving a tsunami.  

In this heart-warming and challenging book, they invite us to share in their incredible journeys of opening hearts and homes, taking on new roles that express unconditional and selfless love to others.

Archbishop Sentamu said: “These remarkable stories show us the Holy Spirit at work and how real transformation is made possible.  When we know God’s self-giving love for us, we are on a journey to walk the way of Christ Jesus and become love to others.  Life isn’t simple but loving help makes all the difference”.

John Sentamu’s Agape Love Stories is available in paperback, priced £9.99, from bookstores and online, or order through Norwich Books and Music ([email protected]; tel – 01603 785 925) quoting ISBN: 978-0-232-53223-4.
